I was using my friend studio cutter today at our group's sewing day while chatting and didn't have the 2.5" strip die completely inside the tray as I started rolling it through. It got a little over 1/2 way when it jammed up. At
first I thought I had too many layers and tried pushing it through. Not the thing to do. When it wouldn't go anywhere I found that it was the die placement
Her dh went home to get his hex wrench set and took it apart. The cutter still works but the larger metal tray is bent on one end. I told her I'd buy her another one, she said she'd check it out later after she got back home.
I'll give her the money to replace it if it can't be used or fixed. I checked online to see how much it was... I was all worried that since it was metal it was going to be $100 or more, but I just checked an it's only $45. I'll dip into my Black Friday money. (I save up all year for my fabric splurge.) It will teach me to pay attention instead of talking.
Has anyone bent their metal tray? Does it still work if it's bent on on end?
I'm more annoyed with myself. She trusted me to be the main cutter today because I'm usually so
careful and have used it many times before safely.
